On Tour


At night, when the stars are out and people are sound asleep in their beds, Midnight the cat explores the town. Tiptoeing along the rooftops, he hears the dreams of all the people as they lie sleeping.

Sweet and magical, Midnight and Anna is a perfect first theatre experience for babies, toddlers and their families. Including storytelling, music, puppetry and sensory play to engage both parents and children.

This a BabyBoo show, created by Horse + Bamboo Theatre.

Age: 0-3.

This show is currently being developed alongside a number of family community groups in and around Rossendale who are feeding in ideas, helping build story, develop characters, and assisting in making puppets and props that will feature in the finished production.

The project will be led by Horse + Bamboo’s in-house Performer/Maker, Alicia Myerscough.

We don’t yet have a fixed story, but know the performance will be all about gardens and nature, introducing babies and toddlers to the idea of growth and nurturing. There will also be interactive and sensory elements to the performance, coupled with puppetry and original, live music.

A percentage of the income generated from each performance will be fed back into the 4 charities we work with during development.

Age: 0-4

Tickets: £5 per child (£3.50 for second child, no charge for adults)
